Come and visit 18 unique gardens in Southland. From small 1/4 acre gardens to many acres, from  the traditional garden to the way out funky spaces. No matter what taste you have you will be inspired.  Soeme are open all year around others are only open over the summer.

Some provide venues for weddings, accommodation, plant sales or have a café. The people gardening in these landscapes make the difference they look forward to sharing their passion, knowledge and unique skills, with you. Make a day of it and visit two or three or more.

 All gardens are open to visitors by appointment only. Most gardens have a fee to visit. Please treat the gardens with respect they are all privately owned, be aware that children need to be under control as many of the gardens have ponds and other hazards, please do not bring your pets with you.
